Summer Celebrations

Originally, I had complained about the 4th of July being on a Wednesday -- only ONE day off? Middle of the week? Boo! After the fact, I am actually glad it happened that way. The week was split up and we all got a little fun day in the middle. Not so bad after all (mental note to be more positive...)

Going back to last weekend... My husband and I cruised the river in an electric boat with our friends. A few months ago, we saw a Groupon for a two hour electric boat rental. Bring your own food, drinks and drive the boat yourself. Sold! The outing was so much fun. We caught up with our friends and had a few great boat snacks and bottles of wine while cruising up and down the river. Here are a few photos from our voyage:





On the 4th of July, we met up with our friends Hannah & Tyler and their friend Andrew for a rooftop cookout. Hannah prepared some yummy dishes (like mini fruit pies and BLT salad) and we got to see the tippy tops of the Navy Pier fireworks over Soldier Field.

What a fun idea! I love boating but wouldn't want to own one. This is the best of both worlds!

I love those mini fruit pies. So pretty!
